    Many homework resources for reading, science, and social studies can be found in Canvas! Blank forms can be found on the Downloads & Forms Page!
    Purple Assignment Sheet & Purple Homework Folder
    All students in Mr. Jameson's Homeroom have Purple Homework Folders and Weekly Assignment Sheets. Students are expected to copy homework and assignments on these sheets each day. They are also expected to have a parent or guardian sign/initial the sheet upon completion of homework each night. We will work toward "graduating" from this requirement as the year progresses.
    Home Reading Log, Post-It Notes & Reading Responses:
    GWES 5th Graders are expected to read a minimum of 30 minutes per night Monday through Thursday. Home Reading over the weekends is optional.
    Students should read the same book they are reading in class when they read at home!!
    The Home Reading Log should be completed each night for a 2 week period. It should be stored in the purple Homework Folder!
    The Home Reading Log will be collected on FRIDAY of the second week! Students receive a grade in Skyward for regular completion of the Log. (Points will be adjusted based on sickness, family emergencies, etc.)
    Students are also required to complete 'Mini Responses' or other activities on some nights. The response sheets and grading criteria will be shared for those specific assignments.
